    • Interface waves in pre-stressed incompressible solids 

      Destrade, Michel (Springer, 2007)
      We study incremental wave propagation for what is seemingly the simplest boundary value problem, namely that constitued by the plane interface of a semi-infinite solid. With a view to model loaded elastomers and soft ...
    • On exceptional vertex operator (Super) algebras 

      Tuite, Michael P.; Van, Hoang Dinh (Springer, 2014-10-01)
      We consider exceptional vertex operator algebras and vertex operator superalgebras with the property that particular Casimir vectors constructed from the primary vectors of lowest conformal weight are Virasoro descendents ...
    • Incremental equations for soft fibrous materials 

      Destrade, Michel (Springer, 2015)
      The general theory of nonlinear anisotropic elasticity is extended to describe small-amplitude motions and static deformations that can be superimposed on large pre-strains of fibre-reinforced solids. The linearised ...
    • Tension lines of the skin 

      Ní Annaidh, Aisling; Destrade, Michel (Springer, Cham, 2019-05-29)
      Skin tension lines are natural lines of tension that occur within the skin as a result of growth and remodeling mechanisms. Researchers have been aware of their existence and their surgical implications for over 150 years. ...
